Gerrard secured the three points in stoppage time with a nerveless spot kick after Ludogorets goalkeeper Milan Borjan had clumsily felled Javi Manquillo.
Following the final whistle, Balotelli and Gerrard posed for a picture in the dressing room.
Balotelli uploaded the photo to Instagram, along with the message: “@stevengerrard ! Yes ! Good start guys! Thanks supporters! YOU WERE AMAZING!”
